The Reed Avocado is our favorite here at Barham Avocados. The Reed is the latest of our varieties to be picked and is available from late December to early February. It is perfect for summer salads, for breakfasts, or even for a snack on the run. It is a large round fruit that is deliciously creamy and full of flavor.
You should be able to recognise the reed as a round fruit with a medium sized seed. It has a thick green skin with a slight pebbling, which is easy to peel and inside you will find a delicious creamy flesh.
It is a medium to large fruit, ranging 200 grams to 500 grams. You can tell when it is ripe, although the skin remains green, the fruit yields to gentle pressure when ripe.
